Keeping Your Employee Handbook Current

As you read this, grab a copy of the Employee Handbook currently in use by your employee population. Take a read and see if all the information within is accurate and current. If it’s not it is time to update and redistribute. Hundreds of employers a year find themselves on the losing end of law suits that focus on the fact that the polices in their handbook did not match the practices of the company. Further, areas where a specific employee is identified as the point of contact for say Sexual Harassment claims, but that employee is no longer with the firm, may result in a greater potential of liability. Updates are essential if you want to get the most protection out of your handbook.
